Thoughtpicker Witch Discussion
1 week ago
Loganrockwitch, I like the Thoughtpicker Witch as a possible sideboard against more control-ish decks. I doubt I would want it mainboard. Doomed Traveler is one card I thought about in the beginning stages of building this deck, but I have found more efficient alternatives. Thank you for taking the time to check out my deck and giving suggestions!!!

IAmTheWraith: Thanks, as always, for the comments :) I'm trying to avoid infinite combos in this list, however.
grimmbone: I gave Malevolent Awakening a look, but I wasn't sure that 7 mana was worth spending to get my commander back...she's not extremely essential for this deck, to be honest. I've definitely been considering Strands of Night here, to be honest - have you found that it's pulled its weight so far in your list? :) And I'm glad this has been helpful to you!!
hoardofnotions redux: Yeah, it's unforgivable that I haven't slotted Skullclamp in here yet :/ I just don't know what to cut...Angelic Destiny is a good way to give Elenda extra power, gives me recurring flying blockers (something this deck struggles with), etc - still one of my most likely cuts. Not overly fond of Thawing Glaciers in general without some form of untapping effect, myself. Thoughtpicker Witch has been AMAZING for me in this list, would HIGHLY recommend. Nobody sees her coming, but she turns the tide of games. Smallpox was so-so when it was in here, honestly. I do have an extra Crucible of Worlds sitting around, but I'm only running a few MLD cards so I'm not sure it's particularly good here. I haven't had problems with opponents' GYs yet (I can just re-kill most things they reanimate, or steal it from them), but if I do have that problem I'll add more hate. And finally, I haven't gotten to test Hidden Stockpile yet, but it seems really good TBH!
Pabs4444: Hmmm. I really don't like that I have to keep paying 1BB for a 1/1, though. Why not just use Reassembling Skeleton? As I said above, I'm trying hard to avoid the standard WB token-sac-aristocrats theme here, which means few sac outlets, and I'm avoiding infinite combos as well. I should be running Sadistic Hypnotist, though.
Thank you all for your comments and support! Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you; things have been horribly busy...

+1 for awesome use of Thoughtpicker Witch!

@: Actually had Mana flooding and draw issues. Dropped 1x Survivors' Encampment 1x Holdout Settlement and 2x Thoughtpicker Witch for 4x Elvish Visionary. This increases Lead the Stampede consistency as well as gives another sac outlet for Primal Growth. You want to mulligan aggressively for a forest and another land.

I'm glad you enjoy the deck! There are a lot of ways to play it and I think it takes a decent amount of thought to play.
Thoughtpicker Witch is cute, especially if we have a bounce loop. It's another way to combo out and gives us a way to actually use the mana we get from something like a Venser, Shaper Savant loop. I'm not sure what I would slot out, but it could definitely have a home in the deck.

Just did some play testing and it was a lot of fun. I am still missing some core stuff for acceleration/control so it was a bit slow (paradox engine chromatic lantern, sensei's divining top, toxic deluge, thran dynamo). Got a couple more cards for your consideration though.
- Sedraxis Alchemist is a essentially another aether adept (a bit stronger actually) and I really liked etb bounce mechanics in this deck so far.
- Thoughtpicker Witch seems like a good inclusion for controlling opponent draw and gives a strong outlet for sacking the tokens, which is something I feel like this deck needs more of since it encourages people to trade against the token or else face extra value from sac. Also I think she's ok to put out for or and token sac.
anyway wanted to get your thoughts on those.

Hi! Nice deck, I see a lot of potential +1
These sac outlets are also great to exploit (and necessary if you want to keep Endrek alive) :
There are a ton of ways to utilize Endrek's ability.
